In my opinion, this makes him far more valuable to us in the long term, than Morgan Rielly would in the short term. There is still the chance that Rielly turns into another Kris Russell.

Reason? He should be healthy by then (might even play in the WHL playoffs, if the 'Tips are still around), and he played there last year.
I think the only reason that happened was that the Oilers wanted to scout him some more.
